I sent 10 Tweets to the UK Labour Twitter site last night enquiring as to when justice will be seen. Several MPs have admitted openly they were in the wrong. This means they obtained cash by deception, which is a chargeable offence under the Fraud Act, 2006 as well as being a chargeable offence under the Theft Act, 1968.
They admit their guilt to the crime, and yet they are still at large, just how does that work then?
